As Walt Disney World prepares for its 50th anniversary celebration, the highly anticipated Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is set to open on October 1. Nestled into the back of the French pavilion, the family friendly dark ride has everyone excited to explore Remy’s world and get a taste of that Parisian food life.

Like most Disney World experiences, the ride is just part of the adventure. The little nuances that bring the guests to the ride makes the “other world” disappear and plunges the guest into that fully immersive experience. Although the journey does not require a passport, the guest does feel transported as soon as they walk under Remy’s archway to his little slice of Paris.

Although the La Creperie de Paris calls on the right hand side of the street, many people will be instantly drawn to the fountain marking the path to the ride. While it is not a replica of the Fontaine des Mers, the Ratatouille inspired design is bursting with beauty.

From the champagne bottle spouting their “bubbling” water to the little rat designs throughout, it is best to take a few minutes to enjoy the view. Even though no one has to throw three coins in the fountain, it is a nice view to ponder.

All around the ride area there are nods to France. From the intricate iron work to the even the bikes parked to the side of the ride, it seems that a moment in time has been captured. Although no one has to throw their beret in the air, a few visitors might want throw out the phrase “pourriez-vous prendre notre photo.”

As guests set to enter the ride, many of the scenes from the movie, Ratatouille, are present. Whether it feels like riders are ready to enjoying a dining experience at Gusteau’s or just want to feel enveloped by the Parisian night sky, every detail is taken into account.

With little rat cars waiting to take everyone on that journey, the adventure awaits. Even if guests are not literally shrunk to that scurrying size, the proportions and dimensions make everything come alive.

Highlights from Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

Overall, the ride is a combination of scaled props and screen projections. As the trackless cars travel the experience, the guests are part of the action. From running through the kitchen to avoiding the mop, the action is non-stop.

One of the reasons why Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is so entertaining is that the experience is multi-sensory. Just like a great plate of food hits all the flavor profiles, this Disney World ride encompasses all the senses.

While everyone expects the Disney World ride to have amazing visuals, the reality is that the aromas and change in temperatures make this experience even more engaging. In many ways, it does feel that the rider has left reality behind and has become a character in the movie, at least for a period of time of time.

Without ruining all the details for others’ experiences, one note of caution. You might leave this ride craving a freshly baked baguette.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is set to open October 1 within the French Pavilion at Epcot. The ride opening coincides with the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration that kicks off on that day.
